Performing arrangements of pop music from all eras, contemporary commissions, and classical works, they are the most versatile and expansive group on NYC’s classical/pop/rock/jazz/indie/alternative/punk/electro-acoustic scene. Genghis Barbie was incepted in a unique moment of ingenuity when Freedom Barbie, Alpine Barbie, Velvet Barbie, and Attila the Horn converged and vowed to create distinctive, interactive and personal performances. Balancing individual musical careers in addition to their busy New York City performing schedule, the ladies of Genghis Barbie have performed at multiple International Horn Society Symposiums, premiered a solo commission at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium, and appeared on America’s Got Talent.
